Pat,

Nick, a friend of his and I had tough sledding until this afternoon. Nick ran into a big-time school of pannies and we commenced to having a blast.

On a side note, I have to laugh every time I see the word "striper" used in place of white bass. Just for the record, there are no stripers in deez' parts.

Did a lot better than me! After the sun went away I think the bite was gone, where I was at anyways. Collectively we missed a couple & marked many. Got some nice windburn outta the deal.

marbles I was out there Thursday a.m. and the ice was 2ft. + everywhere I drilled. It was my first time on the lake so I was a bit nervous too until I started drilling. I saw you heading out this a.m. Otter. Was wondering how you did. Sounds like you had some fun. It was pretty slow for me on Thursday.

I was there but didn't see the pros. Lost a nice pike in the morning and found some gills in the afternoon to save the day.

luckycrank, I thought I saw your truck today, I almost said something to TO but I wasn't sure!

As stated before the ice is in great shape for driving and the snow cover is being knocked down with the warm weather.

When the sun is out think "shaded" areas of the lake, we found the most active fish to be under the deepest snow banks.

Whole lot of nothing for us. Worked Crams, the E end, and the main basin "villages" with nothing to show for it. Out before sunrise and off the lake at 11 a.m. Family down from the cities and I thought at the very least I could fall back on the white bass bite. Nothing.

Saw a perm with a door ripped off though, any stories behind that?

Also check the point directly north of the access in 25-27 fow

real close to the break line

I found they wanted to chase, ratheer than eat.

when they gang up on your jig with out eating it lift it about 2 feet and jiggle your bait real fast and they'll pound it. (assuming you have electronics).

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.

      It would be great if he is right.   Now, if he is wrong......   Still need to stop deer farms from spreading this disease.

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
